Khloe and Tristan split up (again) plus more celeb news ICYMI this week
Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson have broken up — again. On June 21, reports revealed that the two quietly split a few weeks ago. The latest breakup came after Instagram model Sydney Chase claimed in April that she hooked up with the NBA player while he was in a relationship with Khloe. (Khloe, of course, took Tristan back in the summer of 2020 after breaking things off in 2019 after his second major cheating scandal.) “They’re getting along. There is no drama,” a source told Page Six of Khloe and Tristan now, adding that “everything is amicable, and they are on the same page with co-parenting” their 3-year-old daughter, True. Just before the news hit, the Daily Mail reported that Tristan was at a party on June 19 where he spent 30 minutes in a bedroom with three women.

Britney Spears publicly addressed the court in a conservatorship hearing on June 23, and she didn’t hold back. Not only did the pop star insist her comments be made public but she ask the judge to end the conservatorship that’s ruled her life for the past 13 years and she railed on her father, her family, her case manager, her management team and more. “I’ve lied and told the whole world I’m OK and I’m happy. It’s a lie. I’ve been in denial. I’ve been in shock. I am traumatized. Fake it ’til you make it, but now I’m telling you the truth, OK? I’m not happy. I can’t sleep. I’m depressed. I cry every day,” she said. “I’m not here to be anyone’s slave.” She also revealed that she wants to expand her family but can’t because of the conservatorship. “I have an IUD in my body right now that won’t let me have a baby and my conservators won’t let me go to the doctor to take it out. … I feel ganged up on. I feel bullied and I feel left out and alone,” she said. Among other revelations the pop star made: She wanted out of her Las Vegas residency but claims father Jamie Spears refused. She alleged that she has privacy and she feels like she’s living in rehab, not at home. Said Britney: “I just want my life back.” Dozens of Hollywood stars weighed in on social media to voice their support.

I have cancer,” the blink-182 bassist-vocalist wrote. “It sucks and I’m scared, and at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this. I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I’m trying to remain hopeful and positive,” he added. “Can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the hopefully near future. Love to you all.” Mark kept his sense of humor in a follow up Instagram post from the hospital. “Yes hello. One cancer treatment, please,” he captioned the photo.

“Wheeler Dealers” host Ant Anstead’s divorce is barely official, but he’s already starting to move on… with an A-lister! On June 24, a report claimed the British auto enthusiast is dating Renee Zellweger. Reports said the Oscar-winning actress, 52, met Ant, 42, earlier this month when they filmed an episode of his new Discovery+ show “Celebrity IOU Joyride.” Renee later returned to the set to drop off some work boots for Ant. Since then, they’ve been spending time together. The hookup comes just days after Ant and second wife Christina Haack, former El Moussa, finalized their divorce and came to a custody agreement for their 21-month-old son, Hudson London.
Salma Hayek’s increasing chest size is beginning to affect her health. While appearing on “Red Table Talk,” the actress spoke all about her boobs as she denied having a breast augmentation. But she did acknowledge that her breasts are bigger and explained why “The boobs grow, a lot,” she said. “For some women they get smaller, but there are some women that when you gain weight, your boobs grow. Other women, when you have children and you breastfeed, your boobs grow and they don’t go back down and in some cases, when you are in menopause, they grow again.” For Salma, “it happened in every single step.” For the record, the “Frida” star doesn’t blame those who think she’s had a boob job. “My boobs were smaller,” she said. “So was the rest of my body. But they just have kept growing. Many many sizes.” Salma, 54, also noted that she’s been having medical issues because of her chest size. “My back has been really suffering from it,” she said. “Not a lot of people talk about this.”
Farewell, Conan. On June 24, Conan O’Brien ended his 28-year career as a late night host, signing off of his eponymous TBS show for the final time. “I’ve devoted all of my adult life to pursuing this strange phantom intersection between smart and stupid,” he said on his last show. “There’s a lot of people who believe the two cannot coexist, but God I will tell you, it is something I believe religiously, I think when smart and stupid come together… I think it’s the most beautiful thing in the world.” During the final week of his show, he sat down with Bill Hader, endured one last “Mac and Me” prank with Paul Rudd and even smoked marijuana with Seth Rogen. His final guest was Jack Black, and Will Ferrell — who was also a guest on Conan’s other final shows — Zoomed in. Conan will now transition to hosting a weekly variety show for HBO Max.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro put a ring on it. On June 21, the “Jersey Shore” star confirmed on Instagram that he and girlfriend Saffire Matos are engaged. Ronnie posted a photo that showed his lady love’s ring, which he presented to her during a beach engagement. The words “Marry me” also appeared in the sand next to a romantic champagne setup and private picnic. “I love you,” he captioned the image. “Thank you for sticking by my side through thick and thin! Til death do us part! #SheSaidYes.” Saffire posted the same image to Instagram. “I said yes!! to my best friend,” she wrote. “I love you.”
James Michael Tyler, who famously played Gunther on “Friends,” has stage 4 prostate cancer. The actor spoke about his diagnosis and secret health crisis on June 21 on “Today.” “In September of 2018, I was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer, which had spread to my bones,” he said, adding that it’s left him paralyzed from the waist down. The cancer was discovered during a routine physical. His health was the reason he didn’t attend the “Friends” reunion in person last month. “I didn’t wanna bring a downer on it, you know? I didn’t want to be like, ‘Oh, and by the way, Gunther has cancer,'” he told TMZ.
Hushed by Ush
T-Pain made an eyebrow-raising statement about Usher on the upcoming Netflix series “This Is Pop.” The rapper said he fell into a four-year-long depression after Usher told him that he “kinda f***** up music.” Usher was seemingly referring to T-Pain’s use of Auto-tune. “I really respect Usher. And he said, ‘I’m gonna tell you something, man. You kinda f***** up music,'” T-Pain recalled. “And then he was like, ‘Yeah, man, you really f***** up music for real singers.’ I was like, ‘What did I do? I came out and I used Auto-tune.’ He was like, ‘Yeah, you f***** it up.’ I’m like, ‘But I used it, I didn’t tell everybody else to start using it.'” He added, “That is the very moment, and I don’t even think I realized this for a long time, but that’s the very moment that started a four-year depression for me.” On June 22, T-Pain backtracked a bit. “I still love and respect @Usher telling that story was in no way meant to disrespect that man. Ppl talk s*** about me 24/7 but when it comes from someone you truly respect it hits very different. I never said f*** Ursh it was a drop in the ocean of s*** I was already goin through,” he tweeted. “And for the ppl goin back 48 weeks to dig up a tweet. Pls find something to do. That was before shawty said anything and the song never came out after I got the information I needed. Leave me out of the Stan convo thanx.”
Harrison Ford is recovering from an injury he sustained working on “Indiana Jones 5” in Britain. The 78-year-old movie star hurt his shoulder, but the extent of the injury isn’t known. In a statement, Disney said, “In the course of rehearsing for a fight scene, Harrison Ford sustained an injury involving his shoulder. Production will continue while the appropriate course of treatment is evaluated, and the filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed in the coming weeks.” Fans might recall Harrison also suffered an injury while filming a different movie in England: While making “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at London’s Pinewood Studios in 2014, he was knocked to the ground and crushed beneath the spaceship’s heavy door, which broke two bones in his leg.
